Ozric Tentacles

11 November / 19:30 / More Info / Tickets on sale Thursday, 09:00

Ozric Tentacles are, simply put, legends of the UK underground.

One of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK's festival scene, "The Ozrics" layer ambient and ethereal landscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves, and psychedelic progressive rock. Their aim is not just to make truly unique and culturally diverse music, but to harmoniously unite all in attendance, and create portals for astral travel. Most fans and listeners report feelings of euphoria, an immediate connection to nature as well as others around them, and intense feelings that they have transported to other dimensions or met with other-worldly beings. It's an open exploration of music and the soul.

In their 30 years, the Ozrics have experienced the vicissitudes of the rock and roll life. The band has flourished through a number of line-up changes, spawned several side projects (including Eat Static and Nodens Ictus), created their own record label (Dovetail & Stretchy), put out close to 30 albums, scored a hit record, and sold over a million albums world-wide. And yet, the basic motivation behind the band’s existence has never wavered.

Just announced: Gabby Young and Other Animals, 22nd November.

Gabby Young and Other Animals

22 November / 19:00 / More Info / Buy Tickets

DHP present "the finest purveyors of Circus Swing”, Gabby Young and Other Animals, live at Band on the Wall.

Gabby Young was on track to become an opera singer until Jeff Buckley and the jazz greats inspired her to switch teams. Gabby’s unique perspective of the world around her is inspired as much by imagination as real events, but when thyroid cancer threatened to take her classically trained voice at the age of 22, she got serious about recording her stories. Using her recovery time to pen her melodies, Gabby took in global influences to fuel her heartfelt emotion, which shines through her beautifully haunting songs. ‘I feel blessed rather than afflicted,’ she says simply.

Gabby recently formed the existing band, normally a 5-7 piece, who complete the magical musical fairground we know today, using a wide range of instruments, most notably trumpet, trombone, piano and accordion. Young’s avant-garde fusion of globally-influenced folk combines Balkan brass, jazz and swing in an aural antiques shop from the future to produce what has been affectionately dubbed Circus Swing by those who realised there was no existing genre to encompass Young’s sound.
